Beef stroganoff with mashed potato

Posted by

Beef Stroganoff is a classic Russian dish made with sautéed pieces of beef in a creamy sour cream sauce, typically served over egg noodles. It looks rich and elegant, but it has simple flavors and is easy to cook. I love this dish and wanted to plate it beautifully to make it shine in its glory. 

It’s Easter tomorrow and a great opportunity to gather with family and friends for a special meal. While beef stroganoff might not be a traditional Easter dish, it’s a hearty and delicious option that could be a great addition to your holiday menu.
You could consider adding some spring vegetables to the dish to give your beef stroganoff a bit of an Easter twist. Peas, asparagus, and baby carrots are all great options that would add some fresh, seasonal flavor to the stroganoff. Also, consider serving the stroganoff with a side of roasted root vegetables or a bright salad to balance out the dish’s richness.
I used buttery mashed potatoes to contrast with the creamy earth beef stroganoff.  Here is an easy recipe to create this dish at home and impress your guests.
